The M10 is a motorway located in Sindh province, Pakistan, however it is mostly referred to as the 'Karachi Northern Bypass'. It is 57 km long and consists of 4 lanes (2 lanes operational). This motorway is named as Mubarak Goth Road.

Route[edit]

The M10 begins north of Karachi at the end of Mohammad Ali Jinnah Road, near the junction of the M9 to which it is connected through a Trumpet interchange. It then continues north for a few kilometers before turning west, where it forms an interchange with the N25. After this interchange it eventually turns south back towards Karachi and merges onto the KPT Flyover at Karachi Port.
